Usually just unchecking or checking it in network properties will turn it on or off.

goto your network and sharing centre then click change adapter settings then right click properties on your network adapter and you should be able to select the "tick box" or install your ipv6

hope this helps

the internet prtocol version 6 (TCP/IPv6) is already ticked in there, when i highlight it i only get the option to install, the uninstall option is grayed out.
so if i click on install i get asked to select network feature type if i then click on either client or service i then get the window with
"click the network service that you want to install, then click ok. if you have an installation disk for this feature click have disc"
" but the window is empty so no network service to choose and i dont know what disc its going on about.

Try the steps listed here to get it working again. I can't say for sure what the problem might be because I have never had a single problem getting IPv6 to work for me, basically it just works with no user input required.

Cannot join workgroup because "IPV6 is disabled by administrator".

Those TechNet links come in handy. It must have been disabled internally for some reason. That link covered most problems associated with IPv6 problems so I figured it might help.

I'm glad you are up and running again.

yes m8,
i uninstalled Teredo tunneling Pseudo-interface from the network adapters in device manager, i rebooted my machine and then when i looked in device manager for Teredo tunneling Pseudo-interface it had gone which was a bit annoying cause then i didnt know how to reinstall it, but after a little look around on google it said about viewing hidden devices in device manager and there it was reinstalled and working properly, tried homegroup again and it worked straight off.
in the end a very easy procedure really just seemed to take ages to do.
